The UN Wants to Be Our World Government by 2030

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

By E. Jeffrey Ludwig  /  American Thinker

In the 1960s, an informed but naïve undergraduate, I was walking across the campus of the University of Pennsylvania with the Chairman of the Chemistry Department, Prof. Charles C. Price.  He told me that he was president of the United World Federalists, and asked if I knew what that organization was.  When I said that I did not, he replied that they believed in a one-world government that would grow out of the United Nations.  I was nonplussed as I had never heard anyone suggest that idea before. 

To me, the United Nations was a benevolent organization dedicated to pressuring the world community in the direction of peace, and to operating charitable programs to help the struggling, impoverished peoples of the world.   I imagined the UN as a kind of United Way on a worldwide scale.

How would Prof. Price’s vision of a new world government emerge?  Although there was a socialistic thread in its founding document, the United Nations was formed based on a vision of human rights presented in the “Universal Declaration of Human Rights” (UDHR) which placed the concept of rights at the forefront for the progress of the world body.  And rights are the mainstay for uplifting human freedom and the dignity of the individual.

The UDHR document followed many amazing documents that presented rights as the central concept of the post-feudal world:  the English Declaration (or Bill) of Rights of 1689, the U.S. Declaration of Independence with its important and forceful assertion of inalienable natural rights, the powerful U.S. Bill of Rights enacted in 1791, and the French Declaration of the Rights of Man and the Citizen (1789). 

The word “rights” appears in almost every sentence of the 1869-word UN document.  The document is literally obsessed with rights, and one must assume they are likewise obsessed with the rights successes as manifested in the United Kingdom, the U.S., and France.  

However, there are some deviations from the rights usage we are all familiar with.  In Article 3, Instead of the inalienable rights of “life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness” found in our Declaration of Independence, the UN declares everyone’s right to “life, liberty and security of person.”  Are they implying that security will bring happiness? 

Or are they implying that happiness is too ephemeral a value, and too Western?  Perhaps more mundane survival goals are needed by most of the world.

We see a reprise of items from our Bill of Rights such as condemnation of cruel and unusual punishment (Article 5), due process (Articles 6,7,8,9, 10, 11, 14, 17), illegal search and seizure (Article 12), and freedom of speech and assembly (Articles 19,20).  But there are new rights introduced which, as early as 1945, were pointing the way towards intervention by the UN in the daily lives of people throughout the world.  

Throughout the document, they assert the right to food, clothing, medical care, social services, unemployment and disability benefits, child care,  and free education, plus the right to “full development of the personality,” (imagine, the UN says I have the right to be me) and the “right freely to participate in the cultural life of the community… and to enjoy the arts” (we each have the right to enjoy a painting or a movie). However, they do not state the right to appear on the “Tonight Show” or “Saturday Night Live”, so there were limits to their largesse. 

In 2015, seventy years after their original rights-based document, the UN took a giant step towards the global government that was only hinted at in their first organizing document.  They issued a document entitled “Transforming Our World: the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.” 

This document has 91 numbered sections of the UN’s program for world government.  The UDHR is only referenced once in the entire document in Article 19.  Unlike the original “mother document” that was under 1900 words, this document is 14,883 words. The 91 items are addressing issues under the five headings of People, Planet, Prosperity, Peace, and Partnership.  Additionally, the document provides 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) to improve life on the planet. 

What is meant by the term “sustainable?” The most often quoted definition comes from the UN World Commission on Environment and Development: “sustainable development is development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”  The earlier ideas and ideals of rights, freedom, equality, and justice are subsumed under meeting of needs and an explicit environmentalism which emphasizes preventing the depletion of scarce planetary resources. 

Of course, the takeoff is the Marxist axiom that society should be organized around the idea of “from each according to his ability to each according to his needs.”  Thus, Marxism is implicit in sustainability, but is nuanced by its alliance with seemingly scientific adjustments and goals related to environmentalism. A technical jargon is welded to Marxist intentionality to produce a sense of fittingness and modern progress. 

The entire “Transforming Our World” document is cast in a stream of consciousness of pious platitudes for a utopian future. It is an outsize utopian dream. Five of the 17 items pertain to the environment.  There are goals for the cities, for women, for the poor, and even for life under the water. 

Absolutely no sphere of human activity is exempt from control by the UN. The key word of course is no longer “rights” except the oblique reference in Article 19.  In fact, this writer did not see the word rights even once in this document even though that word appeared in practically every sentence of the original UN document. 

The one-worlders of the 1950s and early 1960s are now in the UN driver’s seat, and they have made their move.  The overlay of Marxist talk about “meeting needs” has moved to center stage.  The UN has assigned itself a time frame for moving forward in its plan for planetary hegemony. 

This projected transformation detailing (yet without details) a new world order of  environmental responsibility and a significant reduction of poverty and hunger never speaks to the practical dimension of vast manipulations of people by cynical leaders and ignorant bureaucrats who hold their positions through terrorism and bribery. They never discuss incompetence and corruption, twin brothers in the family of venality. 

The document portrays a sincere world where all those in power want to help humanity despite the daily evidence of the selfishness, corruption, murderous intents, devilish manipulations, thefts, personal immoralities, hatreds, and utter depravity of many governmental leaders in every country in the world, and among the leaders of business as well. Is not the Agenda for Sustainable Development itself one of those devilish manipulations?

The sustainability ideal is not wedded to a Christian worldview; instead, individual liberty is submerged in a scientifically determined collectivist mindset with final decisions in the hands of the devilish, all-knowing Big Brothers.  

The relevance of the individual is downplayed. It is being put forward by a UN that is no longer pro-western, a much larger body than existed in 1945.  Will you accept it, or is it time, more than ever before, to begin rethinking our membership in that unsustainable body?

      they want all the countries around the world to finally get their shit together and priorities straight :arrow: :wink:

    • Slimey

      If they want to rule the TURD world, go ahead. If you want to rule the Youarepeons, that’s fine too. But you can’t touch America. And if Democraps try to force US, they will be shipped to TURD world countries. You can HAVE them. :lol:

      • Busta Myth

        Trump loves the UN ya silly fanny, as did the Bushes, Obama, Heinz von New World Odor Kissinger and more than likely the Clintons too

        I don’t like the UN because I read in lots of mainstream articles that the FRENCH UN Officers were giving little African kiddies Cookies to have Sex with Dogs, :twisted: (look it up)

        So if the UN invades America don’t forget to hide your kids, your cookies and your dogs

        Oh wait, I forgot it was Rooservelt, the Commie Chinese, the Commie Russians, the UK and France that started the UN and signed the UN Treaty in about 1944 in San Francisco USA and the UN HQ is in America on land donated by the Robber Oil Baron Rockerfellers

        • HypothesisFree

          The UN was essentially created by the Rothschild Dynasty, which also had practically EVERYTHING to do with creating modern day Israel, which they own outright. The common denominator to all this is

          Zionism = New World Order

          Patriots need to read the following report in its ENTIRETY. It is the Golden Seal of ALL Truth Bombs, and 20 PLUS years from now should be used in all American schools to teach the REAL history ow what ACTUALLY transpired, instead of the COMPLETE BS PROPAGANDA NOW BEING SHOVED DOWN OUR THROATS!

      UHmm no,

      The US still hasn’t retified CHild labour laws….. OR even Part of the International Criminal Court.

      The US is one of those Countries that only uses the UN for their own goals… But if the Rest of the world Doesn’t agree… The US takes names and then reduced funding…. Like a bully.

      The US also has vetoed more bills than Russia

      • Man

        You Can’t have Happiness as a binding goal for the UN because that means you can sue the Government if it impedes on your happiness. It opens up for stupid legal cases.

        Also, You can’t enforce a Christian World-view on the world. Neither is a Christian World view The best in Human interest…. That is why we banned Slavery…. Cause in the Bible it isn’t denounced

        Other countries with other religions aren’t allowed to enforce their religion on others…

        Also The UN isn’t to remove things like corruption and dictatorial leaders since it impedes into the countries sovereign rights. OR are you for The UN to remove Presidents of the USA if they are behaving badly?

        The only Thing what countries can do is join the International criminal court if their own Justice system is perceived as non functional. That is why have dictators like Omar al-Bashir from Sudan tried there. And a War Tribunal for Yugoslavia.

        But like i said…. The US didn’t join that system…. So they feel not empowered to fight corruption

    • raburgeson

      They are corrupt and bankrupt, could just imagine what it would look like world wide. Their lackies stole our industry. We have to go save their asses when they get into trouble. There is no way they will ever rule us in the US.

      • Man

        welll you know… when you support literal banana republics or OIl rich Barons…. like the Saudi’s you kinda know when you get into ….

    • dennisR8

      Tell these United nations world government thugs that prison is what is due them.

      • Bob DD

        Get out of the UN and get the UN out.

    • Ruk9p

      The time has arrived for President Trump to be the man and do the things we all know and love.

      We all know about Justice. We all love Justice, unless you’re a deviant personality like the megalomaniacs at the UN.
      As problem solving goes, on paper, what is required to make the UN a mere shadow of it’s current self is a short list.

      1. Defund the UN. – NO MORE US TAXPAYER DOLLARS, EVER!

      2. Evict the UN from the United States for America – To each and every one of them; You don’t have to go home, but you can’t stay here, or own here.

      3. Upon eviction, confiscate ALL real and physical assets. (Tanks, guns, real estate, vehicles airplanes, etc.),

      Each of these actions is possible with the wave of a pen. The only requirement is the guile and audacity one needs to write one’s name.
